Multi-dbox storage space

Hi, I originally picked mdbox because I had the impression from reading
about it on the mailing list that it was more performant and that it
would conserve disc space.
But lately i found mailboxes have nearly double the storage as reported.
I mean, IMAP QUOTA reports around 900MB for one account that has over
2GB when I inspect the mail location of the user using the linux command
Another account has around 750MB according to IMAP but using du I find
1.5GB. This is for message files and index files combined.
Is this normal? I tried to read the MailboxFormat/dbox wiki page and it
does not directly address this topic but it does reference "doveadm
purge". Do I need to use "doveadm purge"?
